Oh yes, I remember shelling out £450 for the first 1gb drive at consumer level, and I couldn't even get it to work with my A500 at the time.
Original post mentioned that most MD games were full screen. That's not true. Cool Spot may have been, but that would have been a 1 in a 100. 90% of them were the NTSC version under a PAL label, leaving the usual PAL borders.
Edit: Oh wait, is that another kind of full screen you're referring to? I should prolly give Cool Spot a run
